Spa v Spa: The Most Interesting Complaint I’ve Seen In A While

Just so we’re clear, I don’t see my role as critiquing complaints. What I do is suggest that you will benefit from careful reading and analysis of a particular document. This complaint alleges unfair copying of a style of doing business under 43(a) and Wisconsin state law. The litigants are competitors in the inflatable pool and spa business.

An aside: the photo on the bottom of page 5 is particularly goofy.

    One interesting feature is the sole use of “distinctive” in the complaint is to refer to the registered trademark.

    Good comedy! “The photograph … bear[s] a striking resemblance to the photograph in Bestway’s catalog.” Is bad Photoshop the modern equivalent to salting phone books with fake phone numbers?
